Avril Lavigne to perform in Korea Once Again

20-year-old rocker Avril Lavigne performed in Korea once again. She held a concert in Korea in January 2003 during the peak of her popularity and excited Korean pop fans in their teens and early 20s. Lavigne performed at the Olympic Hall in Olympic Park, Seoul, at 8:00 p.m. August 11.

The main reason why I like Lavigne is that she has rejected teen pop, which is represented by Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Instead, Lavigne shoulders a guitar and bounces on the stage like a tomboy playing her self-composed songs to gain the support from her peer-age fans that are tired of sweet and light songs.

I heard Korean fans were banned from jumping in the hall during Lavigne’s first Korean performance at the Millennium Hall in Central City because the building might have shaken.

I watched her showcase of the new album Under My Skin in Korea through the Internet. She looks so small and cute, however, her voice has lots of power and something to touch people.

And I'm gonna post a clip about the showcase in Seoul ASAP.
